Hi there!
Mfc-970mc has a built-in message center that you can use. Once you activate this setting the person who's calling you willnot hear the fax tone again. On this setting you will receive faxes and voice calls on the same phone line/ phone number.
Please open the manual and check pages 79-95 to set up the built-in message center of this fax machine.
Please rate and hope this helps.

Hi sythonk

Go through the Menu on the LCD, Initial setup, dial tone, choose the correct dial tone PULSE or TONE.
Exit from the menu.
Pick up the handset on the fax machine, and dial your nuber to make a phone call. (To send a fax, dial the number without lifting the handset.)
Hope this will work for you. If it solved your problem, give a please rating

We can send faxes but we can not receive faxes. The fax machine that sends the fax tell it that our line is busy. Is that a machine problem or a phone line problem?

Problem lies in your Receive Mode setting. If you don't have a dedicated phone line for the fax machine, you need to set it up for either Manual where you answer every call or Fax/Tel whereby the Fax machine determines if the incoming call is a fax or phone call. Instructions per Intellifax 4100 Manual.

Select a Receive Mode
Choose the mode that best suits your needs by pressing the Mode button
repeatedly until the FAX and FAX/TEL lights show the setting you want to use.
You must answer every call yourself.
The Brother machine must be started manually
to receive faxes.
For use with a dedicated fax line.
Every call is answered as a fax.
For receiving fax and voice calls on one line.
The FAX answers every call and receives a fax or
double rings for you to pick up a voice call.
For use with an answering device.
The TAD answers every call and stores voice messages.
Fax messages are printed.

Cannot receive faxes

the brother I/F 885MC ( MC stands for message center ) it has a built in answering machine.

to use the built in massage center you need to press the receive mode key till the display reeds
( MSG CTR) next to the time & date

the way the fax need's to be hooked up is from the wall jake to the line jake on your fax machine.

anything you need after that you go from the ext. jake to your ansering machine or extra phone.

if you don't have owners manual go to you can down load manual
